The replacement of the New Haven catenary system is discussed from the viewpoint of the engineering processes involved in the planning and design of this replacement project. In studying the replacement system, catenary systems worldwide were examined to determine their suitability. One major constraint was the existing support structure spacing of 300 ft.
